Grosjean is safe at Lotus.. EB more-or-less confirmed that in at least one interview I saw him give over the weekend. Dont forget he brought Grosjean back and kept him on despite the errors & problems in 012. Massa might be a contender there (for Kimi's old seat), but I have a gut feeling it will be Williams. Next year could be a "blank canvas" start for all the teams, so this year's form may be irrelevant come March next year. I've posted before, I think Rubens will be influential in getting him in there.

Lotus is the only logical choice, the other possibles are only makewaits on the grid. Does Massa really want to spend the remainder of his F1 career trailing round in 15th place, I doubt it, he's lucky to have had 8 years at Ferrari most people don't last that long. I think he should follow Webbers sensible choice of driving sportscars, he's good enough to land a top drive anywhere.

I think Lotus will have to take a commercial decision despite what Boullier would have everyone believe...unless Genii want to keep pumping money down a black hole.

i think Hulkenburg would be the preferred choice but it's a team obviously losing money.

Don't forget Total is a big sponsor for them as well (and more or less connected to Renault) and they like to see a frenchman in the team. I don't think Grosjean is going anywhere. Below the line he once again has substantially less points than Kimi but he also has been a bit unlucky at times and a bit too cautious in the beginning of the year. He has however shaken the crashkid monniker as much as possible and in the last few races he also has shown pace again. I think he will get his 3rd year.

I too would go for Hulk in the 2nd seat, but that said I'd really like to see what Massa can do in another team.

Williams could be an option, although they have mostly been underperforming for years now, apparently they still have a decent budget and with new regs, Pat Symonds and Mercedes power if there is any time they might become good again it's next year. Worth a gamble.

. Mister Massa, here is the list for your NEXT job

1. FIA head - who would know about F1 than you.
2. Pirelli - Do the F1 drivers a BIG favor, improve the current situation
3. RBR - Becoming a " Test Pilot " overthere would give you a BIG sense of Getting-Back to the horse

Forget about Le Mans, NASCAR or races back home.

And...yes, do speak up !
